    Hi girls, Thought I should try to catch up a little on how everyone is doing I have been quickly getting on for a little checkup, but no time for replies as I have had DS and DD both sick. DH even stayed home from work to help out, they were pretty ill, poor darlings..

    Marcellus, that is awesome to hear that A is walking

    Monnie, Hope all goes smoothly for you with TTC #2 hopefully we will be hearing some news of a bfp soon

    Mako, So sorry to hear about your surprise m/c Good news that the Metformin won't interfere with B/F.

    Lenny, Thanks for asking about DD. She is doing really well. We took her away last weekend, and have been having lots of chats. She was sick this week, think it might have been gastro? But she was lying on the lounge and noticed how much weight she has lost (Not that she was really overweight to begin with) and seemed a little shocked) I can't believe she is 9 either!! She will be 10 in November..double digits! OMG!! I feel too young to have a child in double digits LOL..

    Ok, must go, DS is awake... hope everyone is well

    Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts
    It must have worked because we got a BFP.
    We are super thrilled of course, but we are trying to keep low-key about it for now.

    How are you feeling Lenny? You guys must be in seventh heaven!

    Nic - how are the kids? All better? Hope things are going well with DD also.

    This might sound a bit wierd, but sometimes I think it was a good thing that it took so long to get pregnant. I think I've grown as a person in that time and learnt so much that I'm probably a better mum than I would have been if we'd gotten pregnant right away. Though maybe that's just because of the circumstances we were in when we first started trying.

    Anyway, Lenny has started the ball rolling - I hope we see some more bfps coming soon for those already ttc.

    Oh, and I'm going to be working again. Let myself get sucked back in as they are desperately short of hands. On full-time for a month and then will see how we're going...

    Congratulations, Lenny! Exciting news there!

    I have to admit that I'm insanely jealous - not because I want to be pregnant again just yet... but because I know it's probably at least another 18 months or more before I can even think about becoming pregnant again with the way my health is and the medications I'm on... I'll get over it eventually... I feel a bit funny for thinking that way when Sam's still so young!

    Hi Everyone,

    I thought I would just pop in and introduce myself as I no longer belong in the pregnant after LTTC thread as we are now holding our miracle in our arms. I am sure that there are people in here that I have come across from other threads (hi BW!) Anyhow, I am Janie and my little miracle was born on 2 April 2009 and her name is Jasmine. I fell pregnant on my first HRT FET after a failed stim cycle and a number of failed OI cycles.

    I will try and read through the thread to catch up on everything, but in the meantime HI!

    Welcome and congratulations Janie.

    BW - I had the opposite problem to you I guess. I knew that if i waited too long after DS was born to start ttc again, then i would end up needing another op for endo. I did NOT want that! Especially with no family around to look after DS. So, much as i didn't want to stop bf so soon, I had a bit of a clock ticking IYKWIM?

    I'm still in a bit of shock that it worked so soon.

    I know you will all be keeping an eye on the budget etc, and I hope we can all band together and make a bit of noise about how this is going to affect our lives.

    Lenny, I think that's one of the things that bugs me... I couldn't BF, so there's no issues about weaning and in many ways I'd LOVE to be going back for another already... and it just feels odd that I can't, not because of BF like so many of you but because of my nasty, toxic, chemo drugs which I have to be off for around 6 months before it's possible to even start trying again!

    Anyway, I think it's about bloody time people around here got a break and it's bloody fantastic to hear that number two has come along so quickly when number one has been so problematic. As much as it sparks feelings of jealous, it also inspires a great big bucket load of hope!

    The budget has really thrown me... I know I was leaning towards transferring our two frozen embryos and then that's that, no more stims... but this budget means the decision is made for us for financial reasons, not us making the decision as what's best for us as a family. It's amazing how coming to the same conclusion but from a different angle can completely change your emotions on something.

    Hello ladies,

    I just wanted to drop a quick note to say Hi and can I join....?

    My baby girl was born 12 days ago and I may not have much time to chat at the moment, but thought it wise to at least say a quick hello. I'll be reading to catch up when I can. There are a few familiar faces here from the PALTTTC thread that I was a part of.

    Anyway - duty calls....

    Far out! I was in here for a quick read yesterday and thought I had posted!
    Will make it a super quick Hello from me, hope you are all well
    Marcellus, kids are good thanks for asking. DS has a slightly runny nose, but nothing too bad. DD went back to school and is home today, again, think she pulled a neck muscle poor thing. she is most upset as she has tennis this arvo.
    Will try to catch up a bit better over the next few days.

    Welcome Nixon and Janie!

    Hope you're enjoying the snot Monnie - NOT!

    Well BW, we never like having decisions forced upon us, doesn't matter if we might have come to the same conclusion on our own anyway.

    Nic - hope your DD's neck is better soon. No good missing out on tennis!
